2009 GL550 - 70k miles - Gas

We haven't had any abnormal repairs over the last handful of years other than tires (approx. $2000 mounted & balanced). We're currently dealing with an airmatic issue that hasn't hindered the ability to use the car in any way. However, it's likely going to be at least $400+ to fix whatever is going on with the system that's causing the malfunction light.

my 2008 GL320 only has 88,000 on it now but before i bought it and right after had pretty much every major repair
steering leak, oil cooler, swirl motor, transfer case, all air bags, plastic piece that goes onto tturbo and holds orange seal was cracked and replaced

i have not had it long enough to do many repairs
and hopefully it wont have any

had a 2008 ML320 with 145,000 when it was totalled and it never had the oil cooler leak or the steering leak
plastic piece to turbo did crack and have to be replaced, since those are 350-400 parts i included them in repairs
the ML was a great truck, very dependable etc

wow , awesome to see these last 2 diesels have only needed maintenance and nothing else
I will add that the car has begun to mark it's spot when parked so I know that the oil cooler replacement is in my very near future, I'm ordering all the parts in the next day or so and will do the replacement myself including replacing the oil cooler itself while in there as I've read that a couple of people did just the seals and it leaked again, not willing to go through all that's involved to have it leak again.
